As many of you know, I entered the commercial UAV/UAS world (better known as drones) several months ago. The unfortunate thing is, the only media coverage that really is predominant are those incidents that shine some negative light on what can be and is a valuable tool in a variety of disciplines. This recent incident […]

So I’m fortunate enough to get to do some traveling with my work and get to see many an interesting place, work with incredibly passionate and hard working individuals for several large organizations and institutions. I’m also asked about the small organizations or even just some residential services.  So I put some thought into it […]

The eyes have it.

In the shadow of 9/11, in the wake of the Arab Spring, rioting in the UK and various other global events either classified as terrorism, freedom uprising or just misguided youth, one industry that has been constant and growing is video cameras. Whether its been surveillance or sousveillance we capture billions of images and stream […]

Safer by design

Safe environments are not simply created safe by installing really good locks on doors, strategically placed high-end video surveillance or a highly skilled security team.  Locks and target hardening is not enough.  There is more to it.

Risk Assessments – horse and buggy theory

  It’s an easy principle really.  The horse goes in front of the buggy.  Not getting very far if you try the other way around.  It’s not an earth shattering discovery, but one that is often mis-applied in security and risk program development.

Standing out

So where do you stand?  Cameras or no cameras, security guards or no security guards, integrated approach or no integrated approach, buy in from all stakeholder or fragmented buy in from stakeholders.

Do you have your “Pro” card yet?

  Many things or situations these days tell us to “not to get involved”, “you’re only provoking an additional response”, “don’t urge him along”.  Don’t be an enabler. Well I say, be pro-active, be an enabler, be a professional! Those who don’t step forward, or support positive mechanism simply don’t understand it’s value.

What approach do you take?

Are you still taking or accepting a cookie cutter approach to your security and risk mitigation strategies?

Remember when you were young and you’d be out doing stuff.  You tried to get your toys to do one thing but they just weren’t made to do that, or you couldn’t figure out how to get it to do what you wanted it to do?
